College football players are realizing they have voices.
They aren’t just cheap paid labor. If a school isn’t treating your properly find one that will. If they seem to be on the side of Trump make sure you get as far away as possible.
Two Black players are transferring off of the Liberty University football team, citing the school’s insensitivity to racial issues.
Tre Clark, who played high school football at Manchester, and Tayvion Land of Ocean Lakes in Virginia Beach, announced their decisions on Twitter on Monday morning.
Clark said the decision was “simply bigger than football or the program,” adding that he appreciated his time with the team and the friendships he built there.
Land posted a similar statement.
Good for them.
